is concerned about the second amendment right to keep and bear arms. on this issue, vice president joe biden -- the nice thing is that you don't need a punchline. [applause] you simply say his name and people naturally laugh. but vice president joe biden had some advice for all of us. if somebody is attacking your home just go outside with a double barrel shotgun and fire both arrows into the air. which is very good advice. if it happens you're being attacked by a flock of geese. on guns, following the horrific tragedy in newtown president obama came out saying, let not let's go come down on the violent criminals like a ton of bricks. but instead, the president said, we will use this as an excuse to go after the constitutional rights of law- abiding citizens. in washington, the momentum was entirely with the president on this. conventional wisdom was that this was unstoppable. and i will tell you that three senators signed a very simple and short note to hear he read that said we will -- harry reid that said we will filibuster anything that prohibits our right to bear arms.

rubio and hillary clinton and joe biden but no paul ryan or mario cuomo. >> i just read about mario cuomo, andrew cuomo i guess. we have a debate about it all the time. our reporters are very reluctant to become part of this, the cottage industry of the next presidential election the day after the last one. >> that is our cottage industry and we will stay with that. >> but the reality is we all do it. i think right now it least i've been impressed as an industry and not getting too far ahead of ourselves and allowing it to be the players. paul ryan is not doing anything to really make it look like he is running for president right now. i feel like it probably is but he is keeping a lower profile than rand paul is. and so i think right now certainly most of the reporting that i see frankly has been pretty good about keeping it limited to the people that are made the moves towards that. >> donald trump?
